Good looking but funky

Excerpt: This seemed like a good purchase at first but once I got it home and started using it, I don't really like it. First of all, it makes a strange noise that is supposed to simulate clicking of the wheel. It sounds like a creaking spring and is impossible to turn off if you have a Mac. Supposedly you can turn the sound off on windows but I'm not sure. The touch pad on the top didn't seem to track very well. I'd give it 2.5- stars.
Excerpt: If you travel like I do this is the mouse for you. Lays flat when not in use so it does not take up much space. It even has a magnet to hold the USB dongle when not in use. No more lost dongles.
"Wha? No Bluetooth in an otherwise PERFECT travel mouse?"

Pros: Closer to feel of a desktop mouse than any travel mouse. Fits palm instead of just fingers. Turns off & packs flat. Comparisons to desktop mice are unfair - compared to typical travel mouse, its amazing.
Cons: Here we have a mouse PERFECTLY designed for travel with a compact laptop or netbook, but it's not Bluetooth?? Duh. MS would sell untold thousands if it were equipped and marketed correctly!!
Excerpt: This is a strange produce, to say the least. It is noisy when one scrolls up or down. It switches applications if several are open at the same time without any move by the user, which is extremely frustrating. For instance, when one has Outlook, Mail and the Internet open, any of those applications will take over the screen without any prompt or movement by the user.
Excerpt: This fits my hand well, the battery has lasted for close to 6 months, and it fits well in my travel bag. I really like it. Might not be so good for people with big hands. Some of the drawbacks are: 1. It does not work on my glass desk. 2. DO NOT lose the transceiver. The mouse does not work without it. This alone is why a 5 star mouse is only getting 3 stars.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly
Excerpt: Brand new, well packed and received in great condition. Very much appreciative with timely shipment. Received as described in the site<br />I am very happy about the product, its greatly used on day to basis. One of the good stuff to have with you for your needs.
Pros: Accurate Tracking, Comfortable Design, Fast Response, Glides Smoothly, Works On Any Surface
Excerpt: Its a great looking, comfortable and reliable mouse. Stores flat when it's off so it fits well even in a pocket. Magnet on back of mouse holds the receiver when in transport. Would prefer the receiver to store IN the mouse but not a game changer.
Cons: I'm in the middle of a work project and it stops functioning. To get it back working again all I have to do is bend it back and forth (turn off & back on) I have yet to find a solution to this issue & just keep it funcioning without any problems.
